Test Prep Workshop™ 


No amount of tips or tricks will help students do well on the ISEE, SSAT or HSPT tests. To excel, students need strong foundations in Math, Vocabulary, English, Reading Comprehension, and Writing.  Test Prep Workshop (TPW) provides the best teaching methodologies to optimize test success and school performance. At TPW, we assess how the student learns, what the student knows and what we need to teach for maximum success on the test and in life. Students will also learn test taking strategies, such as how to interpret instructions, manage time, reduce test anxiety, strategically answer questions, and when to make educated guesses.

The entrance exam is an important educational milestone. According to the Private School Review, only 67% of students who take the exam in the bay area get into private school. Parents are aware of the risk and students are aware that they need to perform. Anxiety is high. It is important to offset the influence of test taking stressors so that students can perform to their highest potential on the big test day.


So, we invite your student into our home to take practice tests, review with Bert or Madeline, learn something new inside or outside, snack on warm cookies or take a break to pet a bunny. Or if you prefer your home or online, we are happy to accommodate you!
